[Openmcl-devel] Determining OSX version at runtime

The Apple release notes for Snow Leopard suggest using
NSAppKitVersionNumber.
On my Snow Leopard system, I see

CL-USER> (apropos "NSAppKit")
X86-DARWIN64::|NSAppKitVersionNumber|

But on my 32 bit ppc Leopard system, apropos doesn't know anything about it.

(Both systems using ccl 1.5)
